2023 Clausura: Semifinals Preview


There are six games left until the 2023 Clausura ends. The first four will be the semifinals that will feature both a Clásico Regio and a Clásico Nacional, in matches that will have a lot of emotion, with the four teams sure to leave everything on the pitch. Here's our preview of the two semifinals:

Monterrey vs. Tigres
It's a Clásico Regio in the semifinals. In the 2017 Apertura these two contested the final and Tigres left with the victory, while in the 2019 Clausura semifinals, they did the same, knocking Los Rayados out of the tournament. Both teams from Nuevo León have had very different tournaments. While Monterrey were the overall leader with 40 points with 13 wins, one draw and three losses, Tigres struggled a lot but under Robert Dante Siboldi they closed the tournament in good form to finish with 25 points.

America vs. Chivas
We're all looking forward to a spectacular Clásico Nacional.The last time these two met in the Liguilla was in the 2020 Guard1anes, in the quarterfinals. Chivas won then by an aggregate score of 3-2. Now, both teams arrive at a great moment after a great tournament. Both the Águilas and the Rojiblancos finished with 34 points, but goal difference will see the Azulcremas close the tie at home.
